LabVIEW 2011 f2 [x64]: No "Targets" pull-down menu in the "Getting Started" window

Go to solution

Is this normal? I do not recall whether "Targets" selection was there initially but it is not there now! I have installed the Vision 2011 Module, WSN 2011 Module and ARM 2011 Module and their icons show up on the initializing splash screen, although there are no ARM Module VIs present in the ADE.


If that is a bug, what should I do to repair?


Thanks in advance,

Hi golubovski,


Have you done a system restart after installing LabVIEW and these modules?  Can you verify in Measurement & Automation Explorer that these modules are listed under the software drop down menu?

Also, please be aware that 64-bit LabVIEW 2011 only supports the Vision Development Module.  Please see here:$CXIV/ATTACH-AEEE-8J4KJV/$FILE/Windows_readme.html


If you are using 32-bit LabVIEW with a 64-bit address you should have no problems.

Hi Brian, thank you for responding. I have no problem with the 32-bit LV2011, I am asking about the 64-bit version which I have installed side by side with the 32-bit. I know the differences as well as the functional limitations of the 64-bit version, but I simply cannot recall whether there was the "Targets" pull-down or not. Somy question is - Is it supposed to be there like with the 32-bit version, or is it supposed to be absent?

I'd assume since 64-bit LabVIEW 2011 is not compatible with these modules, they will not populate the Getting Started list with Targets.  If they show up properly in 32-bit LabVIEW 2011, then this is most likely the problem.
